    Christian Yelich is expected to be back in Milwaukee’s starting lineup Friday night when the Brewers open a three-game series with the San Francisco Giants at Miller Park.Brewers manager Craig Counsell rested the outfielder on Wednesday against the Chicago Cubs — Yelich’s first day off outside of scheduled team off days , since July 3.More Brewers coverageBrewers Final Pitch: Chacin dominates mound in Game 3 of NLCSChacin, Brewers blank Dodgers to take 2-1 lead in NLCSDespite struggles, No. 23 Badgers still have hope in Big TenStrong winds could be factor for Brewers, Dodgers in NLCS Game 3Photos of the Week: 10/7/18 – 10/13/18He has been an iron horse for Milwaukee ever since and has started all 42 games since the All-Star break while playing 387 of 391 innings during that stretch. The heavy workload has had little impact on his performance, either. He’s batting .357 in the second half with 16 home runs, 42 RBIs and a 1.134 OPS.Still, Counsell chose to give Yelich a breather with the hope of keeping him as close to 100 percent as possible for the stretch run.“It was time. He needs a day off,” Counsell said. “(Resting him Friday) was certainly in the conversation, but we got to the point (Tuesday) night where he needs a day off.”Yelich singled in a ninth-inning Logan Morrison Jersey , pinch-hit appearance Wednesday night, extending his hitting streak to six games and his on-base streak to 22 games — the longest active streak in the National League.“Look, this is a guy who has played every day. There’s not many guys playing every day like this,” Counsell said. “We just reached a point when he needs a day. … Friday was a thought, but we just reached a day where it has to be today. He’ll be ready to go on Friday.”The Brewers squandered a golden opportunity to get back into the National League Central with a sloppy loss to the Cubs on Wednesday night. Now four games back of the division leaders with 21 to play, the Brewers’ most likely path to postseason play is through the wild card, a race they lead by a half-game over the Cardinals.They’ll have another chance at the Cubs next week but can’t get caught looking past the Giants.“Regardless if we ended up winning or losing (Wednesday), we still have a lot of games left to play,” veteran outfielder Curtis Granderson said. “We have the Giants coming in this weekend and they’re going to play who they have to play.“Win or lose Tim Tebow Jersey , the season doesn’t end today. We still have to come back, reset from whatever happened, enjoy the off day like we’re going to do and then get ready to play on Friday.”Milwaukee will face yet another left-handed starter in Derek Holland, who has held his four opponents to no more than a run. That’s all the Mets could muster against Holland his last time out. He allowed four hits, three walks and struck out three over six innings of work but took no decision as the Giants fell, 2-1, in 11 innings.Since moving back into the rotation from the bullpen in July, Holland is 5-3 with a 2.42 ERA.“I’ve got a good staff helping me out and keeping me out on the field,” Holland told the San Francisco Chronicle. “Working with (Matt) Herges and Curt (Young) Jay Bruce Jersey , these guys have done a great job of putting me in different spots, going out of the pen and coming in as a starter. Moving me on the rubber, it’s all helping me.”Friday will his second career start against the Brewers who counter with right-hander Chase Anderson.Anderson beat the Giants earlier this season in San Francisco but will need to keep the ball in the park if he wants to improve to 2-0 against them in 2018.He leads the National League with 28 home runs allowed this season but has not given up more than three earned runs in any of his 10 starts in which opponents don’t homer against him. LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers will make a rotation shuffle Sunday, swapping left-handers for the series finale against the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium.With a 1 p.m. local start, what they won’t have to worry about is a power failure after Dodger Stadium went dark Saturday for the second time in almost four weeks in the middle of a game.Instead of lefty Alex Wood, the Dodgers will now have lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu take aim at the Padres with the chance at a series sweep on the line. Wood will now be pushed back to Wednesday, which is the finale of a brief two-game interleague series at Texas.Article continues below ...No reason was given for the change, although Wood has been struggling with nagging injuries this season that was originally diagnosed as leg cramps in a couple of early starts. He eventually went on the disabled list earlier this month for left adductor tendonitis.The Padres will stick to their original plan as left-hander Robbie Erlin will make his seventh start, including his fifth this month. Erlin has spent most of the season in the bullpen but in four previous August starts , he has put together a 3.43 ERA, earning two victories in the process.With the Padres looking to make some rotation changes in the coming weeks, every outing is sure to be picked apart. Lefty Eric Lauer (forearm strain) could be back as early as next week. Lis Perdomo (strained right shoulder) could be back not long after that.“We’re going to continue to talk through our rotation plan (we had) coming out of the break,” Padres manager Andy Green said. “Nothing is finalized at this point and time. (Lauer) is a candidate to be reinserted at some point in time next week.”Ryu knows all about an up-in-the-air status, having spent 3 1/2 months on the disabled list with a left groin strain. He has made two starts since returning, a tidy six-inning start Aug. 15 when he held the San Francisco Giants scoreless over six innings, and a start Tuesday against the St. Louis Cardinals when he gave up three runs on four hits over four innings.Despite having starter Kenta Maeda working out of the bullpen, the Dodgers will use just four pitchers this time through the rotation: Ryu, Walker Buehler , Rich Hill and Clayton Kershaw.The Dodgers moved 2 1/2 games behind the co-division leaders Arizona and Colorado and they do not sound like a club that will take a game on Sunday against the last-place and struggling Padres for granted.“Everything needs to be tightened up as we move toward September,” Hill said, according to the Los Angeles Times. “As we know, things get amplified. And you want to be able to be as close to perfection as we can. … We’ll continue playing like there’s no tomorrow.”The future does look bright for a Padres organization loaded with quality prospects. The present, though, is a bit unsightly with 10 defeats in their last 12 games, including a bad-luck loss that happened Saturday on the first pitch after the power was restored in L.A.The Dodgers entered the current series 8-12 in August, but are now on the verge of their first three-game series sweep since July 2-4 at home against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
